Mema Review – Legit Company or Another Scam? Find Out Here…
Welcome to my Mema Review!
Whether you have been in the MLM industry for years, or if you are a first timer looking at online businesses, chances are you’ve come here today because you want to know more, right?
Maybe you have already heard about this company, or maybe you came across it in your searches, and now you want to check it out and find out what it’s all about!
You’ve came to the right place!
In my review, we will dig into the company’s history, their products and their compensation plan.
Let’s get started!
Mema Review – The Company
To start off the review I’ll start with the company’s website and tell you what important facts are missing.
The company’s website is lacking info on the owner of the business and who is running the business, both huge red flags in my opinion.
After some more digging I was able to reveal the date on which Mema had registered their company website domain “mema.on.za”, which was on the 3rd of August in 2008, by Quinton Le Grange.
The company was registered with a PO Box address in Cape Town, South Africa by Le Grange himself.
Le Grange also says on his Facebook profile that he “works at Mema”, however it does not state if he owns it on his profile.
Well there isn’t much else to go on here, so let’s move on to the products.
Mema Reviews – The Products
The company advertises a variety of third-party telephone services, which include:
- Emergency medical
- Personal health advisor
- Roadside assistance
- Home assistance
- Tax and financial assistance and
- Legal assistance
Another offered service is one I have never heard about before:
A service offered is, a repatriation of mortal remains service, given that ‘the deceased’s body is more than 100km from their place of residence (and) within South Africa.’
There is a monthly fee of R50 ZAR a month ($3.70 USD) for access to each of these services mentioned above.
Other companies with legit products are:
The Mema Compensation Plan
Affiliates who want to participate in the company compensation plan are required to sign up, buy the membership and then sign up for a service.
The company affiliates must pay a once a month fee to the company.
There are commissions paid by the company to the affiliate when they sponsor new affiliates whom also pay monthly fees.
Note: The company compensation plan on the website appears not to be the current plan used by the company.
To give you a breakdown, there is a YouTube video online called “MEMA Compensation plan explained!” uploaded on the official Mema YouTube Channel.
The website eluded to new positions available under the ‘What’s new’ section of their website as of the 1st of September.
The company uploaded the video on 10th of September, 2017, to the official Mema YouTube channel (Mema Affiliate Marketing (Pty) Ltd) for all to see and understand what new compensation could be earned.
Direct Recruitment Commissions
The company affiliates earn direct sponsorship commissions of R50 ZAR from the business for each new affiliate he or she personally sponsors.
Residual commissions are for those affiliates who qualify by paying 2 months worth of service fees (for a minimum of one service).
The company pays affiliates residual commissions through a unilevel compensation model.
The unilevel compensation model used by the company puts an affiliate on top of a unilevel team and any personally sponsored new affiliate is palced directly below them on level 1.
Level 1 affiliates who sponsor new affiliates have their new affiliates placed onto level 2 of the original affiliate’s team.
Level 2 affiliates who sponsor new affiliates have their new affiliates placed onto level 3 of the original affiliate’s team, and this goes on and on down a hypothetical never ending amount of levels.
However, the company caps the payable unilevel levels at level 10.
The service subscription fees paid monthly by the unilevel team affiliates is where a percentage of the fee is taken and paid out by the company as commissions.
The first level unilevel commission follows variable commission rates because it depends on the total number affiliates sponsored:
- Bronze – Sponsor and maintain one affiliate and receive a 50% first level commission
- Silver – Sponsor and maintain two affiliates and continue to receive a 50% first level commission
- Gold – Sponsor and maintain three affiliates and receive a 40% first level commission
- Platinum – Sponsor and maintain four affiliates and receive a 30% first level commission
- Diamond – Sponsor and maintain five or more affiliates and receive a 20% first level commission
There is another rank one can reach which is Eagle rank (above Diamond rank) where the affiliate is required to:
- Sponsor and maintain at least seven affiliates, three of which are Gold ranked
- Have at least nine Gold ranked affiliates on the second level of their unilevel team and
- Have at least eighteen Silver ranked affiliates on the third level of their unilevel team
The amount an affiliate earns on their first level also plays a role in the commission rates and unilevel levels the affiliate earns on.
- Bronze – 4% on levels 2 to 4
- Silver – 5% on levels 2 to 5
- Gold – 6% on levels 2 to 6
- Platinum – 7% on levels 2 to 7
- Diamond – 8% on levels 2 to 8
When an affiliate attains the rank of Eagle, he or she is paid a variable percentage across 10 unilevel levels.
This variable percentage earned by the affiliate is established by month-to-month subscription volume achieved by each unilevel level.
- The highest of the ten levels pays a 15% commission
- The second highest a 13% commission
- The third highest an 11% commission
- The fourth highest a 9% commission
- The fifth highest a 7% commission
- The sixth highest a 6% commission
- The seventh highest a 5% commission
- The eighth highest a 4% commission
- The ninth highest a 3% commission
- The tenth highest a 2% commission
Cost To Join Mema
The cost to join Mema as an affiliate starts with a monthly membership fee of R70 ZAR.
There is a 90 policy, where first the affiliate can sign up with up to 3 Mema services for R150 ZAR ($11.10 USD) for the first 90 days.
After the 90 days is up, the affiliate is able to subscribe to more services with a special monthly rate of R50 ZAR ($3.70 USD) for each service.
The company’s advertising hints that every affiliate must subscribe to a minimum of 1 of the company’s services available for retail.
This now makes the total cost of joining Mema and becoming a member between R120 to R420 ZAR ($8.90 to $31 USD).
Note: On the company’s official website there is mention of a R200 ZAR yearly membership fee and an activation fee.
Whether these fees are in addition to the R70 ZAR monthly fee mentioned in the official compensation video remains uncertain.
Verdict on Mema
Overall Mema looks okay, but there is ONE big red flag personally…
I don’t know who is running the company and for me that’s a HUGE factor when I want to join a company.
I see they already have retail products and they seem to be legit…
Personally, I would wait it out until the ownership reveals themselves so you can actually trust the company.
When I see the ownership not being transparent, they can pretty much shut the company down anytime, run with the money and there will be no one to take responsibility.
You see what I mean?
